If you’re like we are, you’ve ruined a few holidays. Or more than a few. The dread that I’d wake up with on Christmas mornings after getting annihilated on the Eve was horrific. The kids would wake up excited about Santa and I’d be nursing a hangover and pissed that I wasn’t sleeping. Not great mom moments. One year I told the young son of a good friend that there was no Santa. I can’t take back those times. I can remember them and not ever repeat them. We repeat what we don’t repair. At least I do. So on this Christmas Eve just allow yourself to relax and enjoy what you’ve got. If you’re sober, that’s the best gift we can ever give or receive. Make memories you will remember. I’ve never regretted NOT drinking. Happy Christmas Eve, sober family! Keep it simple today.
